Britain’s Biggest Climate Change Campaign – 4 to 10 March 2013

climate week 2013 headerWould you like to plan an event or activity for Climate Week 2013? By registering your event, you can help build a social movement for change, encourage others in your area to run their own event, and profile the fantastic work that you are doing. All registered events will appear on the online map. One of several in the city – Greening up our cities – has been organised by the Thinktank – a Birmingham Cafe Scientifique event, free entry.

On Tuesday 5th March, join Professor Rob Mckenzie (University of Birmingham) to discuss the role that plants play in our urban lifestyles.  Flash floods have become more and more prominent recently as the sheer amount of concrete prevents water from draining correctly but the use of trees and other decorative plants can actually do more harm than good to overall air quality if their location is not considered properly. Come and find out the truth and discover what you can do, if anything, to green up our cities!

6.30pm for 7.00pm start at The Jekyll and Hyde (upstairs Gin Parlour room)
28 Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham, B4 6BJ
